I am currently waiting on results from an excisional biopsy I had on Tuesday. I had a few questions to ask so I called the hospital. While on the phone I asked how long I'd have to wait for the results. The nurse on the phone said my results were due to be discussed at the next MDT meeting. These are held on Fridays and its too late for this fridays so will be next week. Surely if it was a cyst or something they would just know. I know I'm being silly worrying but I cant help it. I've had a lump investigated two years ago and received a letter within days informing me it was benign. So, does this mean they think its Cancer?? We've had a lot of Cancer in my family and I am terrified and now I am just sat here crying.
Mdt stands for multi disciplinary team. So there will be the surgeon who did the biopsy, the radiology person who may have taken some images before the biopsy was done, the pathologist who looked at the sample and various other people. It is pretty standard that all lumps and bumps that are excised are discussed in an mdt, the discussions range from 'this one was completely benign, we will call mrs smith and reassure her' to 'we need to do something about this' and the team then makes a plan of what to do next. So basically, being discussed in an mdt doesn't mean anything bad, just means you're getting the best care
Just got home to a message telling me my results arent back yet so could be another week before we know anything. Considering I found this lump and had my first appointment in April I feel exhausted. I just hoped that the biopsy would mean the end of the process and I'd finally have some answers .
